Wasatch Roller Derby (WRD) is a roller derby league based in Salt Lake City, Utah. Founded in 2008, the league currently consists of three home teams, and two travel teams which compete against teams from other leagues.

Originally emerging from the Salt City Derby Girls,[1] Wasatch joined the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in October 2009,[2] and were accepted as full WFTDA members in June 2010.[3] The league founded the Wasatch Junior Rollers, a junior roller derby team, and have close links with the men's league, Uinta Madness.[4] By January 2012, they were described as the biggest league in Salt Lake City.[5] In 2013 the WFTDA transitioned from a region based ranking system to an overall ranking system. WRD entered the new ranking at 20th in March of 2013.[6]
